Lucile Dooley

Louis J. Bragman. 'Ludwig Lewisohn: Psychoanalyst of Literature.' The Psychoanalytic Review, July, 1934, Vol. XXI, No. 3, pp. 301–315.

The writer discusses the neuroticism of Ludwig Lewisohn and the manner in which he detaches himself from his own problems by means of his writings. His two major problems, a sense of frustration and a serious Oedipus situation, he objectifies in his early works. 'Expression in America' completed his cure, and to detailed discussion of this book the author devotes the greater part of his paper. He feels that Ludwig Lewisohn's psychological interpretations reveal a keen knowledge of depth psychology accurately applied. 'Having purged his own creative urge, Ludwig Lewisohn has done likewise for American literature.'
